On TV tonight
SERIES PREMIERE Penn & Teller Tell a Lie, 10 p.m., Discovery Imagine if NPR's Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me made a TV show about their made-up news stories and had this magician duo present them. It's kinda like that.

SEASON PREMIERE Nick Swardson's Pretend Time, 10:30 p.m., Comedy Central Wow, another Comedy Central show makes it to a second season. There's something you don't see every day.
